Slovenian PM threatens to resign before early election

Baku-APA. Slovenian Prime Minister Alenka Bratusek said here on Tuesday that she would "absolutely resign immediately" if a snap election is called before summer, APA reports quoting XInhua.

Bratusek made the remarks days after she failed to be elected as president of Positive Slovenia, one of the ruling parties in a coalition government.

Noting "an early election in Slovenia is a fact," Bratusek said that "it is right that people say who is to form and hold in their hands the fate of Slovenia in the coming four years."

However, she added that no decision will be made until her talks to the heads of other coalition partners.

Bratusek, 43, is the first female prime minister in the history of Slovenia. Slovenia declared independence from former Yugoslavia in June 1991.

She was authorized to form a new cabinet after parliament dismissed the coalition government headed by former prime minister Janez Jansa in February 2013.

Analysts said the coalition government will collapse if Bratusek resigns, or fails to survive a potential confidence vote.

Parliament needs to elect a new PM-designate within 30 days. If legislators fail to do so, the president can dissolve parliament, and call a snap election.
